  1. That’s a shame. I liked him- he was a worker.
  2. Now that is what I call a good signing. I said elsewhere that with the likes of Ridyard we could well have stayed up. Let’s hope he stays injury free and has a strong pack in front of him. Excellent stuff
  3. Slightly (totally) off the subject- but nice to see that Lee Kershaw has earned a new 2-year contract at Wakefield. He did a good job for us.
  4. Replaces Abram at full back I’d guess.
  5. I thought Dan Abram improved towards the end of the season and put in some good efforts. He was out in some difficult positions due to poor defending and ball control in front of him. But yes I agree with you 100%~ the likes of Hawkyard is (and was) what we need. Similarly in the halves- a knowledgeable hardened rugby brain who knows the ins and outs when it gets down and dirty, to bring on and sort out the youngsters. You have to wonder about Swinton-if our last season’s players are the best they can target you have to wonder what they’re aiming for.
  6. Lucas Onyango put in a very strong stint for Oldham Roughyeds a few years ago. Also played for Widnes. Born in Kenya and works for the Kenyan RL. Nice bloke, too, in my experience.
  7. Good grief. Has he not suffered enough?
  8. I’d bet any money that Swinton b Oldham will be the first match of the season.
  9. We could do with the likes of a Ridyard. Someone like that might have kept us up last season.
  10. Wilkinson gone to Swinton too? They’ll be signing Stuart Littler next. Hands off!!!
  11. I’m happy with the appointment. Let’s hope he has the tools to work with and z workplace in which to do it. The sooner things are put in motion the better.
  12. The man is a legend. As is that Dave Naylor fella.
  13. I read on the website that the Oldham Past Players Association dinner is completely sold out-waiting list in operation. You could have sold out a fair sized banqueting hall to fit the past players from this season alone.
  14. You’re welcome. I think we’re going to need every ounce of that luck- not to mention a player or thirteen.
  15. Probably our third best player, by a street. Good guy.
  16. I fear that this is the thin end of the wedge.
  17. This game not doing Jordan Abdul’s Mam of Steel chances any harm. Outstanding.
  18. This feels like the end of an era in a sense-a disastrous season results wise, but some immense performances of will, effort and determination, barring two or three disastrous embarrassments. Brian Mac is worth reading on the Roughyeds’ website on that. Given that Owen, Joy and Bridge are retiring; the likes of Dupree, Ince and I think Reilly already signed elsewhere, in addition to the shocking (yet typical rugby league) uncertainty regarding funding, organisation and so on, leaves us in a state of limbo. Who will stay, who will go, which players we might target will already have been snapped up elsewhere. We seem to be behind the 8 ball even before next season is considered, never mind begun. With a sense of pride and gratitude for the efforts of coaches and players mixed in, I also feel deflated right at the moment. Yet I know that as soon as next season approaches I’ll be excited, stupidly optimistic, and expecting the worst. It’s called being a Roughyeds’ fan - and it ain’t going to go away.
  19. Dupree is astonishing. Week in week out.
  20. Going to Widnes. If he’s not S League standard before long, I’d be amazed.
  21. I haven’t seen a better individual try than that by anyone, any league, all season. This lad could really make it. Good consistency in defence from Oldham, mind - just as poor on the left side as the right.
